  author={Taoran Li and Xiao-jun Jiang},
  journal={Research in Astronomy and Astrophysics},
The telescopes and the infrastructures may alter the local wind environment around the observatory and further affect the observing environment. After the completion of site testing, it is necessary to analyze the wind environment of the entire site and plan the telescope layout to make use of the excellent conditions scientifically and rationally. Taking a typical observatory as an example, the effect of topographical features on the wind environment and the mutual interference between… 

Aerodynamic modeling in dome seeing study of the 2.16-m telescope

Abstract. Aerodynamic analysis is a crucial part of evaluating dome seeing, which is one of the main factors affecting telescope image quality. Due to the large volume and high heat quantity inside
